Penguins rally past Rangers for 4-3 shootout victory

PITTSBURGH (AP) Mike Sullivan is impressed with his team's resiliency. The Pittsburgh Penguins coach would just prefer it if his players didn't rely on it so much.

Kris Letang scored in the final round of a shootout, and Pittsburgh beat the New York Rangers 4-3 on Friday night for its third straight comeback victory.

Letang ripped a backhand over Igor Shesterkin to put the Penguins in front. Tristan Jarry collected his first win of the season when he stuffed New York's Tony DeAngelo moments later. Jarry's teammates poured over the boards to celebrate, while Sullivan exhaled after Pittsburgh scrambled back from a two-goal deficit.
